What brought you to Alliance Spine and Pain Centers?

I have been suffering from severe neuromuscular pain syndrome with spasms since the age of 17. Unfortunately, the pain only became more intense as I got older. 

What issues did you need to be resolved? How were they addressed?

For over a year and a half, I was in and out of the hospital seeking relief for my pain. Then, I was referred to Dr. Omar Hajmurad at Alliance Spine and Pain Centers. He sat down with me and discussed different treatment options. After having limited success with medication and procedure management, Dr. Hajmurad suggested a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) trial to help with my bilateral low back and leg pain, which was averaging 8.5-9/10 on the pain scale.

This trial helped relieve my pain and improve my quality of life so much that I elected to move forward with the SCS implant. My pain is currently a 4/10 on the pain scale and has not been this low in years.     

Tell us about the Alliance physician you worked with.

From the very first day, Dr. Hajmurad was open and honest about my treatment plan. I felt that he always on my side as we figured out a solution. 

What lesson do you want those reading your story to learn?

At first, I was really nervous about the SCS trial. However, I am so grateful that I decided to move forward with it. It significantly reduced the amount of pain I felt and improved my quality of life.

How are you doing now?

Not only has the spinal cord stimulator helped relieve my pain by 50%, it has also allowed me to sleep better too, which gives me more energy when I wake up and puts me in a better mood. Overall, l just feel happier!

What Brought You to Alliance Spine and Pain Centers?

Since the 1990s, I have had back problems. During that time, I developed rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and, finally, sciatica. Because of all of these issues, I couldn’t sleep at night, walk, or ride in a car because of the motion. My rheumatologist recommended Alliance Spine and Pain Centers, so I headed over.

How Was Your Experience with Alliance Spine and Pain Centers?

After I received my first epidural, I felt like a teenager again! I had great results that day, and I even walked my dog. The issues I had earlier were alleviated, and I could get back to my normal life again.

Now, Alliance is working on some occipital nerve issues I’ve been having in my neck. Earlier, I couldn’t move my neck. However, I now can finally move it around again.

The staff is so good. I love them all! At first, I was anxious to go to the center, but everyone has made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. I don’t worry anymore.

You can put me down for 5 stars!

Tell Us a Little Bit About Yourself

My husband is retired from the military. We live with our married daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters.

In my free time, I love being with my dog and taking care of her. I also love to cook and watch cooking shows. I live right next to Kennesaw Mountain and have 10 deer that come to my backyard every night so I can feed them. It’s such a bright spot in my routine.

A fun fact about me, I was on the game show “Let’s Make A Deal” with my husband when we lived in Las Vegas in our 20’s. We actually won a Cadillac!
